The stories DID still happen - just with MJ as his girlfriend, not his wife. And as a result of the recent mindwipe, her memory would be fuzzy like Eddie Brocks was.

> Fuzzy? My memory is fuzzy about what I had for lunch last Tuesday. I hardly think that word does justice to describe the memories of most of the Spidey cast these days. And actually, I don't think they would have fuzziness or confusion about anything, since their memories have most likely been re-written.


Yes, as I've said from the outset, the events happened. But they might as well not have, since nobody remembers them. And for Guggenheim or anyone else to get bent out of shape because fans are unhappy with the situation is disingenous at best and insulting at worst.

And on a slightly tangential note, in these postmodern times we live in some would disagree with the supposed logic in your subject line. It depends on if you view reality as objective or as a creation of our subjectivity.
